Test-Optional Through Fall 2022

Minnesota State Mankato is test-optional for admissions through fall of 2022 - We will make admission and scholarship decisions based on high school transcripts and GPA for students that do not provide ACT or SAT scores. Students applying through fall of 2022 will not be required to submit ACT or SAT scores to be considered for admission and missing test scores will not be required prior to attending. If students submit test scores they will be used in the admissions process. For information on course placement, see the University Testing Center's course placement policies website.
